    A deserted wales on a glorious day.
    I had 2 full laps of the EVO triangle and the horseshoe pass to myself mid week on the day all the kids went back to school.......motoring heaven

    Coast to Coast (Liverpool to Whitby and back) including an afternoon chasing Deano and Spokey in heavy rain and mud around the yorkshire dales resulted in this.....

    Another memory that will stay forever was on this years Spanish cruise,in the Pyranees waiting to go thro a tunnel on the French side.8deg,cold,foggy and drizzling
    ai810.photobucket.com_albums_zz29_mauricethemartian_P6180053.jpg
    Then we came out of the tunnel,about 2mls onto the Spanish side to find this

    This is one of my favourite Zed pictures (taken by Gail Oswald). It's me leading the first cruise I organised.

    A nerve wracking day to organise, but it went sweet as a nut and was a fantastic route! Even managed not to get lost!

    This was us ready to leave the starting point! (Left to Right - Me - Russell - Gail & Ron - Penny & Larry)

    So many to choose from!

    This was one of the most beautiful roads I've ever driven:
    ai376.photobucket.com_albums_oo209_328ricky_dawnys_20pics_drivingheaven036.jpg

    Another favourite - on the way to the 'ring
    ai376.photobucket.com_albums_oo209_328ricky_dawnys_20pics_roadtrip_holland_germany004_1.jpg

    Just before my first experience of the 'ring - a day I will never forget!!:
